Uber Shock: Firm Hid Breach of 57 Million Users

Here is a little bit of warm and fuzzy reading for all as we enter into a huge travel season.  Uber was breached.  Bad!  Uber paid the bad guys to cover it up.  Worse!  Ultimately, the expense was passed along to a trusting consumer.  Worst and sadly typical!

I think it might be time to shift to Lyft or maybe even go back to supporting all the hard working taxi drivers out there.  Bad form Uber.  Bad form!
